IGN First has the latest scoop on Sonic Frontiers, with the new video covering the game’s combat out in the open world. You can see it for yourself above.
Sonic looks to have a few moves at his disposal, including swift kicks and punches as he tackles some quite strange enemies. We can’t quite tell as the UI has been disabled, but we’d wager you’ll charge up some of the hedgehog’s more powerful abilities, like that swirling spin kick.
Bearing in mind the game is unfinished, it’s not looking particularly promising at this juncture. We do like how running rings around enemies will affect them, and the fight against the giant robot is something of a spectacle, but like the traversal gameplay, it all just looks very rough around the edges. The jerky camera movements, repetitive attacks and sounds — we really want Frontiers to be good, but these videos aren’t instilling much confidence right now.
Anyway, what do you make of it? Discuss in the comments section below.
